Wednesday’s CBS World News @ 6:30– check it out

Bill Lifford

Hi all!

Check out the CBS World News this coming Wednesday (it’s on at

6:30 PM here in NY), and you’ll most likely see me along with my

incredible patient Edgar Rivera, the man who lost both his legs

above the knee after being pushed in front of an oncoming subway

train by a mentally ill man. The CBS crew was in our office

filming this week. (Normally I wouldn’t use a patient’s name,

but since we’ve been on the news several times, he’s really

almost a household name at this point.)

I don’t know that I’ll get to speak on the program or anything,

but just to see Edgar’s determination and focus (in what has to

be one of the most adverse situations one could ever face) is

pretty inspiring. He walks quite well, too, on his preparatory


I believe the news piece will briefly recap his story and then

describe how the magnitude of his injuries has really slowed his

progress in his quest to walk again.

This man is truly amazing…. I am inspired by him and in awe of

him every time we work together. It has been a privilege to be

his prosthetist and I’m honored to be a part of his support

team. Check it out! Wednesday, 6:30 PM, CBS world news.

Bill Lifford, C.P.
